GWR says passengers who were forced off an overcrowded train at Plymouth can apply for refunds. Transport Police had to be called in to remove passengers on Good Friday because the service was so full when it arrived in Devon from Paddington.

Travellers branded it a safety hazard. The rail company says the Penzance-bound train was overcrowded as two earlier services had terminated at Plymouth with many passengers waiting to board.
